Charles Taze Russell Not Author
The book appears to have Charles Taze Russell listed as an author of this book along with Aaron Nyman. Russell, however, was not an author this book with Aaron Nyman.
From what I have read so far, much of what Nyman presents does not represent what Russell actually taught in the year 1913, although I can see how Nyman reached many of his conclusions. Nyman appears to not fully understand what Russell taught about "the end of the world", salvation, atonment, etc. Nyman also appears to fail to distinguish that Russell did not utilize the teachings of the SDAs, but he did state his appreciation of many of the works of Adventists (not Seventh-Day Adventists).
Of course, in 1913, when the book was published, there was no JW organization, and Russell never believed in such an organization.
